Reading progress update: I've read 15%.
Murder in the Museum: A British Library Crime Classic (British Library Crime Classics Book 18) - John Rowland

I love the covers of the books in this series, but I have yet to find a story that keeps me interested.

 

:(

 

This one is so slow, dated, and lacking some much-needed atmosphere.

Geared Up (Tales Of The Citadel #54) by Viola Grace Review
Geared Up (Tales of the Citadel Book 54) - Viola Grace

Niad has controlled herself since returning from the Citadel. She has kept out of the public eye and kept off the Guardians’ radar. Her talent is not encouraged by her people, and she is not legally allowed to participate in a rescue, a natural disaster or any law-enforcement actions.

She keeps her head down and continues her work as a vehicle repair specialist until the day that her careful actions mix with a disaster. She finds a fire where a repair job is supposed to be and takes steps to do the best she can for those trapped inside.

That one act is observed by one of the Guardians and evolves into an arrest, a charge, freedom and a change in position. She is ready to gear up.

 

Review

What I love about this book is that we have a working class heroine, a mechanic, with a job that is little valued in her culture and that she uses her skills to save people.

 

Very fun. The romance is nice too and she has great parents.

'Stay After Class" by A. C. Rose is the story of Jem and Amanda.
Amanda is in college and who will be turning 22 in a very short period of time and wants to lose her virginity. Amanda has her sights set on Jem who is her College Art teacher. Jem is older than she is and Amanda finds older men attractive. Jem plays slow with Amanda but you can't tell it will be hot exciting relationship these two are gonna have.
Once I started their story I didn't want to put it down!

A Gentleman in Moscow, by Amor Towles.
A Gentleman in Moscow: A Novel - Amor Towles

I'm putting this one aside and may not come back to it. Much praise has been lavished on it, but it has too little narrative thrust for me, and I find that its charm can be overbearing to the point of preciousness.

Chavs: The Demonization of the Working Class - Owen Jones

As with any non-fiction I read, this is going slow, made worse by the insights into Thatcherism. She decimated so much in the way of working-class Britain. Between her and Nixon, I don't know who was worse.
